RaMBLE is a proof of concept application for detecting logging and mapping Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) devices such as iBeacons and fitness trackers. For more information on Bluetooth low energy see our blogs http//goo.gl/WxfbX7 and https//goo.gl/b0gqhO.
We built RaMBLE to show how easily BLE devices can be detected identified and tracked; It highlights the privacy concerns with some manufacturers' implementation of BLE.
The scanner runs in the background and logs all indirect advertising packets and scan responses received from BLE devices in range. All data is logged into a database that can be exported to the SD card or imported from an existing database file. It does not connect to any devices found nor does it share any data with anyone.
It requires a phone or tablet that supports Bluetooth Low Energy aka Bluetooth Smart. It also requires Android 5.0 or higher.
